Chimps, anti-depressants, and Alt-Bros (link round-up 9/18/14)

[via]

"New research from an international coalition of ape researchers suggests that killing among chimpanzees results from normal competition, not human interference."

"The world population may balloon to anywhere between 9.6 and 12.3 billion by 2100, according to a new report that used statistics from the United Nations. The new estimates far outstrip previous calculations of 7.2 billion."

"'It really does look like the indigenous West European hunter gatherers had this striking combination of dark skin and blue eyes that doesn't exist any more.'"

"A single dose of a popular class of psychiatric drug used to treat depression can alter the brain’s architecture within hours, even though most patients usually don’t report improvement for weeks, a new study suggests."

"Uniqueness is as much a mechanism of control as an apparent expression of our distinctiveness. No wonder it’s been automated."

"The Alt-Bro listens to Ethiopian jazz.
The Alt-Bro wants to astral-project.
The Alt-Bro who reads this will think he’s an exception."
